Constrained tools in 3DS Max 9

I’m attempting to model a hat in 3DS Max, but I’ve come across a problem with my move/rotate/scale tools.

The best way I an describe it is that when using my move tool, when I attempt to move a vertex or side or anything they just slide around the surface of the model instead of stretching and going wherever I need them to.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

That option sound quite useful actually… I need to know how to enable it :v:

I’m sure it would be useful if I could turn it off when I wanted. :v:
